President Baker spoke of the difficulty of operating the 

Army Program and meeting emergencies with quick action under the 

financial conditions that now prevail. The College is required to 

turn in to the State Treasury every cent paid by the Army for the 

Aviation Program. To operate the program, the College must then 

make separate request for transfers from the Governor's Emergency 

Fund for every expenditure desired. Trustee Haigis suggested the 

possibility of establishing a reserve fund in the State Treasury 

for the use of the College. After discussion of this question, it

President Baker recalled that when he had submitted 
Mrs. Annette T. Herr's resignation to the Board at the Annual 
Meeting in January, recommendation for making her Professor of 
Extension Home Economics Emeritus had been overlooked. He re- 
called the service which Mrs. H e rr had given t o the College and 
after discussion, it was 



160 (a)- 1 1-43. 13051 



VOTED: 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

To designate Mrs. Annette T. Herr Professor 
of Extension Home Economics Emeritus as of 
January 31, 1944, the date of her retirement. 



The President reported to the Board that forty-three 
members of the staff are now in the Armed Forces. 

There was discussion of the number of vromen students now 
in College and of the question of how these numbers can be taken 
care of properly when the war is over and the men students return. 
Trustee Carmichael expressed the opinion that the College was per- 
forming an excellent service to the Nation and to the Commonwealth 
by providing enlarged opportunities for women students during the 
war. The Nation needs their services now more than ever. 

President Baker recalled vote of the Executive Committee 
of the Board on June 23, 1943 authorizing a one-year program for 
the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. The conditions making the 
one-year program desirable last year still prevail and the President 
recommended that the Trustees authorize the Administration to con- 
tinue the one-year program for the duration of the war. It is 
difficult to get young men away from the farm for the two-year 
training period, and as the men reach age eighteen, they are subject 
to call into the Armed Forces unless they remain on a farm. After 
discussion, it was 

VOTED : To approve a one-year program for the Stock- 
bridge School of Agriculture for the duration 
of the war with the understanding that certi- 
ficates of completion of the one-year course 
rather than the regular Stockbridge School 
diploma should be awarded to students who 
successfully complete the course. 

President Baker informed the Board that the College may 

receive an assignment of 17-year olds under the new Army Specialized 



Stockbridge 
School of Agri- 
culture -

Reserve Training Program. After discussion, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to proceed with 
negotiations with the First Service Command 
for an ASRT program of not to exceed 300 
aviation reserve cadets and to accept such 
program subject to final approval of the 
contract by the Board. 

Treasurer Hawley recommended that the Trustees authorize 

the purchase of a bookkeeping machine from Remmington Rand at an 

estimated cost of $2500. With the many complications of present 

day payrolls, such a machine would be very helpful to the Treasurer. 

He said that he had discussed the purchase with Major Cronin, State 

Purchasing Agent, and with Mr. Houghton, Deputy State Comptroller, 

and that both men have approved the purchase. On the recommendation 

of President Baker, it was 

VOT ED : To authorize purchase of a bookkeeping machine 
at an estimated cost of $2500 from balances 
available in appropriations of the current year. 



On the recommendation of the Treasurer and the President,

Board of Trustees 
Massachusetts State College 



The following letter of December 7 from Secretary Burke 
to members of the Board of Trustees, Massachusetts State College, 
and resultant mail ballot are hereby made part of the official 



records of the Board. 



December 7, 1944 



To the Board of Trustees: 



After lengthy negotiations ?/ith the Army Contract Office, 
Treasurer Hawley, on the authority of President Baker, took to the 
Finance Committee on December 5 an amended contract establishing 
final terms for settlement of Army Contract #W2620AC-97. 

The Finance Committee has approved the terms of this 
amended contract as you will note from the enclosed minutes and 
have recommended that the Board of Trustees execute this amended 
contract and also execute release from further liability on the 
part of the Army for certain activation expenses. 

Treasurer Hawley feels that final action on this contract 
should take place as early as possible. In view of the fact that 
the Trustees are corning together for the annual meetings in 
January, it does not seem advisable to call a special meeting of 
the Board at this time to act on recommendation of the Finance 
Committee. We, therefore, request your indulgence in considering 
the enclosed mail ballot so that this contract may be executed with 
authorization of the Board. 

An early expression will be appreciated. 



Sincerely, 

/S/ James W. Burke 
Secretary 



Mail Ballot 

I wish to be recorded for recommendation of the Finance 
Committee that the Board of Trustees of Massachusetts State College 
approve the terms of final settlement of Army Contract #W2620AC-97 
and execute an amended contract covering adjustment of £32,4-87.82

Increases for 
President and. 
Treasurer 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

Trustee Brett reported for the special committee 
>ointed by the Chairman to seek salary increases for the President 
and Treasurer and consisting of Trustee Brett, Chairman, and 
Trustees Carmichael and Mrs. McNamara. He indicated that the 
Committee conferred with the Budget Director and requested him to 
recommend increases in the Governor's budget. The Budget Director 
did not feel that he should do this. If such recommendation is 
made for one department of the State, it would open th y for 
other departments to seek similar consideration. This ooem^ to be 
a time of many askings. 

The Committee requested the Budget Director to authorize 
reduction in the house rental of the President if he did not feel 
that he could recommend increase in salary. 

The Committee believes that the next step should be to 
appear before the Committee on Ways and Means and urge the salary 
increases. 

After discussion, it was agreed that the first considera- 
tion should be to obtain increase in salary but that if this effort 
failed, effort should be made to have the house rent reduced. It 



WO; 



VOTED : That the special committee to seek increase 
in salary for tne President and Treasurer be 
continued and that the committee do ever yt hi 
possible to obtain these increases. 

The meeting was adjourned at 1 o'clock.

Board of Trustees 
Massachusetts State College 

You will have noted in the minutes of meeting of the 
finance Committee on February 19, 1945 that the Committee voted 

"To recommend that the Board of Trustees rescind previous 
vote electing Mr. Erickson as Assistant Secretary of the 
Board whose only function would be the signing of 
schedules and vouchers for disbursement of state funds 
in the absence of the President and Secretary." 

and also voted 

"To recommend that the Board of Trustees authorize the 
Treasurer to act for the Board in signing schedules and 
vouchers for disbursement of state funds in the absence 
of the President and the Secretary." 

These recommendations were caused by objections of the 
Comptroller to the original procedure. 

Unless the College can have a duly authorized agent of 

the Board available for the signing of schedules and vouchers in 

the absence of the President and Secretary, one of two things must 
occur: 

Either the vouchers must be taken by automobile to the 
nearest Trustee for signature, or they must be held until the re- 
turn of the President or Secretary. Many of the papers involved 
are discount bills which should not be delayed. 

For these reasons, we request your vote by mail ballot 
on the above recommendations. Ballot is enclosed. 



Sincerely, 

/s/ James W. Burke 
Secretary

should be recommended by the proper administra- 
tive officers of their respective colleges, ex- 
cept that graduates of teachers colleges outside

College with three recommendations, as follows: 



160 (a)- 11-43. 13051 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



1. In order to safeguard a desirable policy for the future 
it is recommended that in any new dormitory to be built for women, 
provision should be made to include adequate dining and social 
facilities. 

2. In view of the fact that a number of women students need 
to be partially self -maintaining, that the possibilities for 
cooperative houses should be explored. 

3. The great need for an Interfaith Chapel is recognized, 
and it is recommended that steps be taken to secure a suitable 
chapel. 

Sincerely yours, 

/s/ Lottie A. Leach 
Chairman, Advisory Council of Women 

Trustee Brett reported on progress of the self-liquidatia 

dormitory bill, and it was 

VOTED: To refer to the Trustee Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds the question as to whether both 
dormitories should be built for women students 
or whether one should be built for women and 
one for men. 

President Baker called attention to recent study of 

college salaries prepared by U. S. Office of Education. This study 

shows that salaries at Massachusetts State College are in the low 

median level for the 52 land-grant colleges of the Nation. After 

discussion of this salary study, it "was 

VOTED: To authorize the Chairman to appoint a special 
committee of the Trustees to seek increase in

NOTE: This Report originated in a discussion of procedures to be 
followed for admission of students to the Graduate School - standards 
to be maintained - degree requirements, and so forth, at a regular 
meeting of the Graduate School Faculty held on November 30, 1944 •

man, Dr. James E. Fuller, Bateriologyj Dr. Theodore C. Caldwell, 
History; Dr. Richard W. Fessenden, Chemistry. 

The Special Committee, after thorough study of the work

discussion of the work of the Graduate School at this College, 
submitted a report which was presented and discussed at the meet- 
ing of the Graduate School Faculty on February 2, 1945 • As further 
discussion was necessary, the Report was taken up at a meeting on 
March 2, 1945 • This discussion resulted in request from the Faculty

was prepared by the Committee and sent to all members of the Graduate 
School Faculty and results were presented at a meeting of the Faculty 
held on April 18, 1945* At this meeting, the Faculty voted by large 
majority to accept the entire Report.

HUGH P. BAKER 



GRADUATE SCHOOL STANDARDS MD REGULATIONS 



In considering students who seek to enter the Graduate School of the Massa- 
chusetts State College, distinction shall be made between (l) those who seek to 
enter the Graduate School for further study, but are not candidates for advanced 
decrees, and (2) those who expect to become candidates for the Master of Science 
or Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Those of the first group who seek admission 
for the purpose of further study shall be selected as provided under the head- 
ing "Admission to the Graduate School"; those of the second group who expect to 
become candidates for the advanced degrees will be required to conform to the 
regulations and standards specified herein for those degrees. 

In setting up the requirements for acceptance for candidacy for the 
advanced degrees, and the standards and requirements for the direction and 
accomplishment of the candidates, the intent of this report is to establish 
minimum standards and requirements. Departments of the College may set 
additional standards as desired, provided they do not violate or nullify the 
requirements and standards stated in this report. 



ADMISSION TO THE GRADUATE SCHOOL 

Admission to the Graduate School of Massachusetts State College shall be 
granted to graduates of Massachusetts State College and of other colleges and 
universities of recognized standing which grant bachelor's degrees substantially 
equivalent to that conferred at this College. Admission to the Graduate School 
does not imply that the student is or will be admitted to candidacy for an ad- 
vanced degree. To be admitted to candidacy for the advanced degrees, students 
must possess additional qualifications as set forth in the requirements for 
candidacy for those respective degrees. 

Students who do not choose to become candidates for advanced degrees, or 
those vjhose application for degree candidacy has been rejected, may enroll in the 
Graduate School for study, provided they have the approval of the Director of 
the Graduate School and of the departments in which they propose to study. 

A department of the College also shall have the privilege of limiting its 
enrollment of graduate students, even though they may be qualified, if that 
department considers the number of graduate students desiring to enroll to be 
in excess of the department's capacity to accommodate them. 

CANDIDACY FOR ADVANCED DEGREES 

Master of Science Degree 

Note : In setting up this section of the report, the Committee recognizes 
that the Department of Education has special problems that do not affect other 
departments of the College. For that reason a separate section is set up for 
the Master of Science in the Department of Education. 

Acceptance for candidacy : At the time of application for admission to the 
Graduate School, the student should indicate whether or not he wishes to become 
a candidate for a degree. The requirements for acceptance for candidacy are 
listed below. Students who meet these requirements may be accepted for candi- 
dacy on the approval of the major department and of the Director of the Grr-duate 






-2- 



School. The major department has the right to reject a candidate if it con- 
siders him an unsatisfactory prospect, or if it lacks the capacity to accommo- 
date him. If a student cannot meet all of these stated requirements his case, 
on recommendation from the proposed major department, may be referred to the 
Graduate School Advisory Committee for decision, on the basis of his under- 
graduate record, the Graduate Record Examination, and his record in the re- 
quired semester here. 

1. In applying for candidacy for the degree, the student shall submit to the 
Director of the Graduate School confidential statements from at least two mem- 
bers of the faculty under whom he worked as an undergraduate, one of whom shall 
be a member of his major department. These statements should evaluate the 
student a; to personal ouali.fi cat ions, scholastic attainments, and general 
antitude for Graduate work. A transfer student shall submit one additional 
statement from a faculty member under whom he did graduate work elsewhere . 

2. The student may be considered for candidacy for a degree only after he 
has received graduate credits equivalent to one full semester of graduate 
study at this College. His record in this work must show evidence of ability 
to continue satisfactorily the work for a degree. This requirement should not 
preclude starting work on a thesis prior to admission to candidacy. 

3- The student must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited collegiate 
institution; he must have been in the upper half of his class so far as his 
whole undergraduate record is concerned, and must have had an average grade 
of 80 or better in his undergraduate major field. 

4,. The student must have completed as a prerequisite the basic requirement 
of the major department for the undergraduate major, or its equivalent. Lack- 
ing this, he shall be required to make up the deficiency before he is accepted 
for candidacy. No graduate credit may be earned in courses taken for making 
un deficiencies. 

5. All prospective candidates shall be required to take the Graduate Record 
Examination (Carnegie Foundation) before being admitted to candidacy. The 
examination should, be taken preferably at the time of enrollment in the 
Graduate School. The major department shall make arrangements for giving the 
examination. 

6. If a student desires to transfer graduate credits from another institution 
to this College, he must first meet the requirements herein stated, after which 
his transferred credits may be evaluated by his major department. 

Residence ; A minimum of one academic year of residence shall be required 
to qualify for the degree. This shall be interpreted as meaning that the stu- 
dent must receive credit for at least nine hours of study at the graduate level 
taken at the College in each of two semester, or their equivalent in Summer 
School. 

Courses and credits : The candidate shall earn not less than thirty 
graduate credit s a of which between eighteen and twenty-four credits, including 
thesis, shall be in the major subject. The balance of the credits shall be 
earned in one or t -r o minor subiects according to the student's needs as evaluated 
by his major department. Not more than ten credits may be earned in thesis. 



-3- 

Only those undergraduate courses approved by the Graduate School Advisory 
Committee ma3' be taken for graduate credit. Not more than twelve credits may 
be earned in courses ooen to undergraduates. 

Credits shall not be valid towards the M.S. degree for longer than six 
years after they have been recorded in the Graduate School office, except on 
recommendation of the major department and approval by the Graduate School Ad- 
visory Committee. 

Grades : Passing grade for graduate credit shall be 70. To qualify for the 
decree the student must achieve an average of 80 or better for his .graduate 
credits. This does not include the thesis, which shall be evaluated separately. 

If a student fails a course (falls below 70) he shall be obliged to repeat 
and pass the course at the earliest possible opportunity, and before he receives 
his degree. Only one repetition will be permitted. If a student fails two 
courses, he shall be dropped from candidacy for the degree. 

La nguage ; The maior department shall re uire the student to furnish 
evidence that he has a working knowledge of one foreign language before he is 
granted the degree. The department may specify the language on the basis of its 
relation to the student's field of specialization. 

Thesis : Type copies of the thesis outline shall be presented to the thesis 
committee (appointed as usual). The outline must be submitted to the committee 
prior to the student's final semester, and must have the committee's unanimous 
approval before it is accepted. 

The final typed thesis report shall be submitted to the committee at least 
two weeks before Commencement, and must have their approval with not more than 
one dissenting vote. 



» 



Examinations: The major department shall require the student to take a 
comprehensive written examination to determine his fitness to receive the degree, 
the time for this examination to be left to the discretion of the major depart- 
ment . 

When the student has finished his work for the degree his major department 
dhall arrange for a comprehensive oral examination. This examination should 
stress the subject matter of the student's thesis and fields of specialization. 

Master of Science Degree in the Department of Education 

The general requirements for the Master of Science degree shall apply, but 
some exceptions should be made. Graduates of state teachers colleges of Massa- 
chusetts and of all other fully accredited institutions of higher learning shall 
be eligible for candidacy for the degree. They should be recommended by the 
proper administrative officers of their respective colleges, except that 
graduates of teachers colleges outside of Massachusetts shall be referred to the 
Graduate School Advisory Committee for decision as to candidacy. 

The residence retuirements necessarily must be flexible, and summer school 
residence may be permitted to count; but it is expected that a student should 
qualify for the degree within six years after his initial registration.

-4- 



Students will be required to earn thirty graduate credits to qualify for 
the decree. Programs must be made to fit individual needs; and to accomplish 
that end; the Department of Education, in consultation with other departments, 
shall arrange individual programs for students. This means that the major-minor 
requirement of the M.S. degree is not binding. It is the intent that under- 
graduate courses given for graduate credit shall be approved by the Graduate 
School Advisory Committee. 

Grade requirements set up for the Master of Science degree shall apply. 
Language requirement and thesis shall be optional. Examinations shall be held 
as for the Master of Science Degree. 

Doctor of Philosophy Degree 

In setting ud the requirements for admission to candidacv for the Doctor of 
Philosophy degree, it should be borne in mind that the degree implies both 
demonstrated research ability and a scholarly mastery, in the fullest meaning 
of the term, of the major and related fields of study. For this reason, only 
superior students should be admitted to candidacy for the degree. This cannot 
be stressed too strongly if the standing of our Graduate School is to be set 
and maintained at a high level. The proposed major department shall have the 
privilege of rejecting candidates as provided under the Master of Science degree. 

Acceptance for candidacy ; The standards for the Master of Science degree 
shall apply, with changes and additions as follows: 

1. The student must have received graduate credits equivalent to one full 
year of graduate study at this College if he starts his work here, or credits 
equivalent to one semester of graduate work here if he has had a year of 
successful graduate work elsewhere. 

2. The student must have been in the top third of his undergraduate class. 

As with the Master of Science degree, the student may be accepted for 
candidacy by the major department, with the approval of the Director, if he can 
meet the requirements. Students who fail to meet the requirements may be 
referred to the Graduate School Advisory Committee by the major department, as 
provided under the Master of Science degree. 

C ourses and credits : The student must earn at least ninety graduate credits 
of which sixty, including thesis, shall be in the major field and at least 
twenty in minor fields. Not more than thirty credits may be earned in the 
thesis. 

Only those undergraduate courses approved by the Graduate School Advisory 
Committee may be taken for graduate credit. 

Not more than fifteen graduate credits may be earned in courses open to 
undergraduates . 

Credits taward the degree shall not be valid for longer than six years 
after they have been recorded in the Graduate School office, except on recommen- 
dation by the major department and approval by the Graduate School Advisory 
Committee. 



-5- 

Residenc e: Residence equivalent to at least three academic years shall be 
required to qualify for the degree, of which at least the first two or the last 
shall be spent at this College. Continuity of residence is urged, particularly 
as the -work nears its end. It is understood that some finishing and writing of 
the thesis may be done after the residence is completed. 

Grades ; Passing grade for graduate credit shall be 70. To qualify for the 
degree the student shall achieve honor grades of 85 or better in a majority of 
his courses, with an over-all average of 80 or better. The thesis shall be 
evaluated separately. 

If a student fails a course (falls below 70) he shall be obliged to repeat 
and pass the course at the earliest possible opportunity. Only one repetition 
will be permitted. If a student fails two courses he shall be dropped from 
candidacy for the degree. 

Language ; This is provided for in the Graduate School catalogue. 

Thesis; The Doctor of Philosopy thesis is intended to demonstrate the 
ability of the candidate to carry on independent scholarly research, in the full 
implication of the term. The findings of the experimental work should make a 
definite contribution to the knowledge of the field. For these reasons the 
thesis should avoid the mere survey or assay type of study, and should be so 
planned as to permit the student to carry out a scholarly study. 

After the candidate has been accepted and the thesis subject has been 
chosen, the major department shall ask the Director to appoint a committee accord- 
ing to the usual procedure. The committee shall consist of five members repre- 
senting the student's major and minor subjects. The student shall submit typed 
copies of his proposed thesis outline to the members of his committee. If any 
member of the committee disapproves the outline, he shall promptly communicate 
his disapproval to the major department so that satisfactory alterations of the 
outline can be made or a new outline submitted. The outline must have the 
Unanimous approval of the committee. Final approval of the thesis outline must 
be completed not later than the' first month of the academic year in which the 
candidate expects to receive his decree. 



'la' 



Finished written copies of the thesis should be submitted to the committee 
not later than two weeks before the Commencement at which the candidate expects 
to receive the degree. The finished thesis must be approved by the committee 
with not more than one dissenting vote. 

Examinations ; After a student has been admitted to candidacy for the degree, 
his major department shall give him an oral examination for the purposes of dis- 
covering any weaknesses in his preparation for imrsuing study for the degree. 
This examination should be given as promptly as possible after the student is 
accepted. 

Final comprehensive written and oral examinations are provided for in the 
Graduate School catalogue. The written examination in the major subject shall be 
£iven by the major department. The final oral examination in the presence of 



-6- 



the Graduate Staff shall be supervised by the major department and shall reveal 
the student's competence in his fields of specialization and in his thesis. 

Publication ; It should be understood that each student receiving the 
degree should make arrangements with his major department for publishing his 
thesis material as soon as oossible.

Carmiehaelj Brown, Saltonstall, Taber, 
Brett, Malcolm, Cole, Hubbard, Mrs. 
Leach, Mrs. McNamara, President Baker, 
Treasurer Hawley, Secretary Burke 

Chairman Bartlett expressed his appreciation to the 
Board members for honoring him by electing him as Chairman of the 
Board. He said that he hoped that it would be within his power to 
contribute effectively in this position and that the Board ntight 
become more interested in the College through having a greater part 
in the original planning of college operations. 

At the request of the Chairman, Trustee Whitmore pre- 
sented recommendations of the Finance Committee from its meeting on 
August 30. Upon the recommendation of the Finance Committee, it wa^ 

VOTED : To add an Engineering Building in the amount 
of $750,000 to the list of capital outlay 
projects in the budget and to place this re- 
quest in second place on the list of 
necessary projects. 

Discussion then centered about the item of $98,635 in 
the budget for Repairs and Renewals. Chairman Bartlett said that 
he conceived it to be the duty of Trustees to see that the College 
has the wherewithal to carry its program effectively. The Trustees 
also have a duty to the entire Commonwealth. He did not feel that 
the Legislature would appropriate this amount for Repairs and Re- 
newals in any one year unless members of the Legislature could be 
convinced that Army income for upkeep of facilities ought to be useji 
at this time for Repairs and Renewals. He thought that an asking

Upon recommendation of the Committee on Faculty and Pro- 
gram of Study, it was 

VOTED: To authorize change in titles of professional 

members of the Extension Service Staff to Assistant

second in the list of necessary projects. 

President Baker recalled that through the years the

tion, agriculture, industry, business, public service and the pro- 
fessions. These men would advise and council with the College and 
would be ambassadors for the College in their communities through- 
out the State. After discussion, it was 

VOTED: To authorize the Administration to establish an 
Advisory Council for the College as outlined 
above by President Baker.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

November 20, 1945, 6:30 P.M.,' Parker House, Boston 

Chairman Bartlett presiding 

PRESENT : Chairman Bartlett, Messrs. Cole, Whitmore, 

Taber, Saltonstall, Hoftyzer, Malcolm, Brett, 
Hubbard, Mrs. McNamara, Mrs. Leach, President 
Baker, Treasurer Hawley, Secretary Burke 

Mr. Y/hitmore, Chairman of the Buildings and Grounds 

Committee, presented recommendation of the Special Committee of 

Alumni in the field of Landscape Planning that Lewis and Thatcher 

dormitories be given to the use of women students, that Butterfield 

dormitory be used for men students and that new dormitories for men 

be located in the general area of the Butterfield dormitory. He 

reminded the Board that the Buildings and Grounds Committee had 

originally recommended the construction of two dormitories for 

women near the Butterfield dormitory. The Committee now wishes to 

rescind its former action and to recommend that the two dormitories 



be built for men and be located in t he area of the 3utterf ield dorml- 



1255 



Dormitories 



aory. 



Chairman Bartlett raised question as to why the Committee 



is now recommending that the dormitories near Butterfield should 
be for men students. Trustee Whitmore answered that Butterfield 
has proven to be too far removed from the center of the campus for 
the women students, that if the women take over Lewis and Thatcher, 
formerly used for men, they will be nearer to the Home Economics 
Building, to Stockbridge Hall, ^nd to other campus buildings. 

Chairman Bartlett also raised question as to how much it 
would cost the College to change Lewis and Thatcher for the use of 
women students. President Baker estimated roughly that a minimum 



< s 



1258 



TRUSTEE 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



of $35>000 would be required for the change. In addition some ex- 
penditure would be involved at Butterfield dormitory if men are to 
occupy it. The President suggested that the location of the Home 
Economics Building should not weigh too heavily in the decision as 
to the location of dormitories. He pointed out that a minority of 
the women students are enrolled in Home Economics. 

Trustee Brett urged that the Trustees adopt a long range 
viewpoint in deciding on the location of dormitories. He admitted 
that some costs must be faced now if the men's dormitories are to be 
converted for women but felt that the Trustees should not let these 
costs stand in the v/ay of doing what is right for the long range 



good. 



Mrs. Leach reported that she had discussed the location 



of dormitories with prominent women teachers at the College who 
approved the location of Lewis and Thatcher for women. 

Trustee Hubbard suggested that if the Butterfield dormi- 
tory is too far for girls, it might be unwise to spend more money 
in the same general area for dormitories for men. 

After lengthy discussion, it was 

VOTED: To accept the recommendation of the Buildings 
and Grounds Committee as to the location of 
the two new self -liquidating dormitories; 
namely, that they be for men and in the vicinity 
of Butterfield dormitory. 

Chairman Bartlett dissented in this vote. 

Question was then raised as to whether the vote just re- 
corded requires the Administration immediately to use Lewis and 
Thatcher dormitories for women and Butterfield for men or whether 
the Administration is free to house the students as it sees fit un- 
til the two new dormitories are erected. It was 



160 (a)-ll-43. 13051 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

VOTED : To instruct the Secretary to correct the minutes 
of the combined meeting of the Executive 
Committee and Buildings and Grounds Committee of 
November 8, 1945 so that the vote on the Alumni 
report on Campus Planning would read as follows: 

"It was voted to recommend that the Trustees 

approve the Alumni report on Campus Planning as 

it pertains to the location and use of dormitories." 

It was then 

VOTED: To rescind any previous action in locating new 
dormitories and to request the Massachusetts 
State College Building Association to proceed 
with the erection of two dormitories for men in 
the Butterfield area. 

There was discussion as to ability of the College to nous 9 
the number of students expected in the fall of 194-6 • Trustee 
Hoftyzer said that he had been informed that Camp Miles Standish in 
Taunton is about to be released by the Army and may be abandoned 
all together by February of 194&. ^e raised question as to whether 
the College might be able to acquire buildings from the camp for 
the housing of students. 

President Baker pointed out the great need for housing 
facilities for married veterans. No quarters are available in the 
community of Amherst and the College has been unable to accept 
married veterans for this reason. 

President Baker suggested that it would be helpful if 
the Board would be willing to meet in December to consider ways 

nd means of supporting the 1946 college budget. After discussion, 
it was agreed to meet on Wednesday, December 12, at 6:30 P.M. at 
the Parker House in Boston. Chairman Bartlett invited all members 
of the Board to submit to him or to the President any suggestions

Mr. Stedman, President of Associate Alumni 



It was 



VOT ED : To dispense with reading oi' the call and of 
minutes of the last previous meeting. 

President Baker reported on efforts to obtain housing, 
particularly for married veterans. Copy of President Baker's re- 
port and recommendations dated December 10, 194-5 is attached with 
these minutes. 

The Trustees discussed housing at length raising the 
following questions. 



Housing- 
Situation 



1. Could the College use housing facilities at 
Vt'e stover Field, transporting the veterans to 
and from the field? 

2. Could the Alumni Building Corporation build 
one permanent dormitory and then spend part 
of its money on a series of cinder block 
buildings rather than build a second perma- 
nent building* 

3. Coulc. grant be obtained from the Federal 
Government for housing of veterans? 

4. Would it not be better to bulla permanent 
structures? 



Trustee Haigis suggested that financing of housing for 
veterans is a State responsibility and that the Trustees should go 
to the Legislature for the funds. On question as to prompt action, 
he estimated that a minimum of one month woula be required for 



nc*i 



TRUSTEE 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

Legislative action. 

Chairman Bartlett reported that he had discussed this 
matter by telephone with Mr. Wiley of the Federal Housing Authority 
in Boston. FKA has been furnishing barracks and trailers free 
of charge to colleges with the understanding that the buildings will 
not remain on the campus more than five years. He suggested that 
the President contact Mr. Wiley at 24 School Street to discuss 
the matter further. 

Trustee Whitmore suggested that the capacity of the 
present dormitories could be increased temporarily by installation 
of double deck bunks. 

Trustee Hoftyzer expressed the belief that the Federal 
Government was prepared to help in this matter with buildings in- 
cluding plumbing and heating. 

To obtain the sentiment of the Board, Chairman Bartlett 
proposed a series of votes on various methods of procedure and the 
following actions were taken. 

It was 

VOTED ; Not to change the Alumni Building Corporation 
program from two permanent dormitories to one 
permanent dormitory and several cinder block 
barracks. 

It was 

VOTED: To request that the President and certain 

Trustees to be named by the Chairman request 
audience with the Governor to discuss the 
housing situation at the College. 

It v;as 

VOTED: To request that the President investigate 

the feasibility of housing veterans at West- 
over Field and transproting them to and from 
the campus.

It was further 

VOTED ; That if this plan appears favorable the matter 
be referred to the Executive Committee plus two 
Trustees appointed by the Chairman with power to 
act. 

President Baker spoke of his recent discussions with 
presidents of the New England Land-Grant Colleges. One of the 
topics discussed was adoption of a priority schedule to be followed 
in the admission of students. The New England Land-Grant Colleges 
appear to be faced with greater demand for admission than facili- 
ties will permit. After discussion, it was 

VOTED : To adopt the following priority schedule in 
the admission of students to Massachusetts 
State College during the period 194-5 - 1948, 
it being understood that previously established 
entrance end scholastic requirements remain in 
force. 

1. All veterans who were formerly enrolled and in 
good standing in the College ana the Stockbridge 
School . 

2. Veterans not formerly students in the College 
or Stockbridge School but who are residents of 
the State and who can meet admission requirements. 

3. Returning civilian upperelass students who are 
residents of the State. 

4. Any civilian student, resident of the State, 

in both the College ana the Stockbridge School. 

5 . Out-of-State veterans in both t he College and 
the Stockbridge School. 

6. Out-of-State upperelass students as transfers 
to the College and the Stockbridge School. 

7. Any civilian out-of-state students. 

It was 

VOTED ; To authorise the Legislative Committee of the 
Board of Trustees to appear before the Interim 
Legislative Cominittee on Education to urge 
favorable action by this committee on the setting 
up of a State University at Massachusetts State 
College.

President Baker spoke of the need for Trustees, Alumni, 
and veterans who are students at the College to coordinate their 
efforts to secure additional appropriations for 19 new teaching 
positions and two new buildings as requested in the budget for 
194-6-47. He pointed out that the veterans are already aggressive 
in the matter and that it would be wise to channel their efforts 
carefully to keep them in line with the thinking of the Trustees 
and the Alumni, After discussion, it was

Chairman Bartlett than called on Ralph Stedman, President 

of the Associate Alumni of Massachusetts State College, to learn of 

the efforts the Alumni are prepared to make in behalf of the 

college budget. Mr. Stedman said that the Alumni have appointed a 

special committee for this purpose. The Alumni have prepared a 

printed pamphlet and will see that copy is placed in the hands of 

each member of the Legislature. This distribution will be directly 

from person to person rather than by mail. He added t hat the 

Alumni would be happy to cooperate in any further way suggested by 

the Board. It was 

VOTED ; To welcome and accept with enthusiasm the aid 

of the Associate Alumni in support of the college 

budget . 

It was

President Baker praised the efforts of the Viomen 1 s 
Advisory Council and of Mrs. Leach in obtaining the Home Economics 
Building and said that their aid should prove most effective. 

Chairman Bartlett asked whether Mr. Stedman had any 
further matter which he would like to discuss with the Board. 
Mr. Stedman spoke of the efforts which the Alumni are making to 
raise funds for a memorial to Alumni of the College who gave their 
lives in World War II. He pointed out that the present Memorial 
Hall at the College was built by Alumni contribution and given to 
the Commonwealth. The building is used for social purposes by the 
students; there are game rooms, a dance hall, ana offices for stu- 
dent organizations. However, the student body has outgrown the 
building and the Alumni are proposing to increase the size of the 
present building. Efforts are now being concentrated on the 
raising of funds and there is no thought to hurry the actual con- 
struction under present building conditions. 

President Baker suggested that legislation might be 

necessary authorizing the Alumni to proceed with this project 

which would involve alterations to the present structure. It was 

VOTED; That in the event the Alumni file a bill request- 
ing permission to alter the present Memorial Hall 
by adding to the structure and permission to in- 
sure the new building, the Trustees would support 
their effort. 

Chairman Bartlett then suggested that Mr. Stedman pro- 
ceed with the filing of such bill and report to the Secretary of 
the Board when this is done so that the Trustees can give adequate 
support .

Income from

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



President Baker suggested that the time has come for the 

Trustees to take over the handling of the income from all college 

dormitories on a revolving fund basis. At the present time this 

income reverts to the Commonwealth and the College must annually 

request appropriations for maintenance and for retirement of the 

bonds on the self-liquidating dormitories. He requested that the 

Administration be given permission to file bill placing all 

college housing under authority of the Trustees as suggested above, 

such bill to be filed in time for consideration by next year's 

Legislature. After discussion, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Executive Committee of the 
Board to study this suggestion and to report 
back to the Board before next year. 

Chairman Bartlett suggested that at the next meeting of 
the Board, unless it be the stated Annual Meeting, any Trustee 
wishing any matter to be discussed submit suggestions to him be- 
forehand so that they could be placed on the agenda for considera- 



tion.

Report and Recommendations 

TheJJeed 

The present enrollment In the College is approximately 1,000 students 
*nd 220 soldLSin the ASTB Program. .-This is much smaller than our pre-war «- 
^^Ifd/et all of our fraternity house ana dormitory accomodations are 
T^L^fto^^Zt^^^^ double-normal capacity ana our 
Boarding Hell faculties are operating it capacity. 

In the fall of 1946 ^e anticipate an enrollment of 2,000 students which 
«~m« that re shall have to find additional facilities for approximately 800, 
^rLlmately 50of thlse additional students are expected to be married Totoraiu 
^o^dlaciimes for housing can he found, ftoW a majority of the addi- 
tional stuaents will be veterans. 

Possibilities 



Private residences in the town undoubtedly will absorb some of these 
additional students. Before the v.ar, they did house approximately 700 stadents. 
te»ever teinHhe war, there has been a radical change in this situation. The 
decease SenWua,^ of students made it possible to house practically all of 
tfaS on the S^uTand in fraternity houses so that few private homes were used. 

The shortage of housing for families is at present so acute ttotay 
homes where students'formerly were housed are ^utUi^ *«*•£* apartment , 
There is a real question as to how many accomodation* can oe secure* icrjl^ 
in tbe !ost-war perioa. It is already apparent that the number will be yery m*. 

Sanerl£nTn Z pre-war period. *n inves ^^l^lZt^tulT 
to v;hat extent private homes will accommodate tue additional student enrollment 

peotad in the fall of 1946. 

There is also the possibility that dormitory facilities which wado te 
mi-ht be made to accommodate more students by using double-deck bunks. Our aornu,- 
torfro^Tare small and even with normal housing not much space is provided^, 
study ant storage of clothing and equipment. The maximum additional accommodat, 
widen might be obtained through -this procedure would be approximately «0U. It 
vould require the purchase of double-deck bunks and additional desks . ,t is not 
desirable arrangement for civilian students who need proper -stu dy f acili Ues and 
some privacy. Their program cannot be compared reasons bly * ( Army Pr ogra. 
in • hich the men are on a strict schedule and under rigia discipline. The oth< 
biliS is the erection of additional dormitories which is discussed in the follot 
paragraph. Erection of M otional Dormitories. 

If this alternative is to be adopted, it is urgent that action be takes 
speedily. They oust be ready by September 1946 if they are to meet the emergencj 
and that means, of course, that less than nine months is available for preparat 
of plans and completion of construction- 



(over) 



2- 

iiiany colleges are undertaking a program of dormitory construction 
to meet the emergency auci preliminary study here indicates • Lt isfeas 
There are several alternative procedures available. 

Some colleges are erecting prefabricated houses for emergency 
of carried veterans. These cost from $4,000 to ?-6,000 per family unit* I 
likely that they rould not -be readily useable after the present reusing 
is over and the procedure is not recom&enaed for this College on the basis of 
our present kno*.led&e. 

It ^fea been suggested that some of tne war-housing conatructi 
Army camps or war industries might be purchased from agencies of the Federal 
Government, taken down and moved to this Campus for reconstruction* The repoi 
which we have on this procedure indicate that it is /aore expensive and less 
satisfactory than entirely nev, construction. 

The procedure which seems to be most suitable for our needs is the co 
struction of semi-permanent dormitories of cinder-block or similar type materiel 
in units to provide accommodations for approximately ten families per. building 
fifty single students per buixding* . After the present emergency for housi 
married veterans is over, the apartment buildings could ba reconstructed as 
dormitory for single students and such structures could be utilised for twenty to 
thirty years. 

It seems apparent, at the present time, that we shall face a scarcr 
of student housing on this Campus for many years 5 especially, low-cost housing 
of this type* tfucii a unit might eventually be used as dormitories for £toekt 
School students. Our present Campus housing capacity is 600 end even with the 
proposed additional Alumni dormitories, we shall be far short of adequate Campus 
housing facilities « 

This proposal is for the construction of six to eight buildings at an 
estimate of approximately $50*000 each, some to be ms.de into apartments for 
married veterans and others to be used as dormitories for single veterans,. One 
building should contain a commons kitchen and boarding hall to serve the entire 
group of single students, 

1 

On the basis of this program for the construction of eight buildings, 
funds required would be approximately $4-00^000 a These would house forty marrl 
veterans and 200 single veterans. It is estimated that such a project could cs 
its operational costs, interest and amortisation on a 20-year basis if the apar 
ments were rented at -il^OOoOO per year .and single-student rentals of 3100.00 per 
college year* 



The best arrangement for financing from the point 'of view of. the Col 
Administration and Trustees aould be an appropriation of State Fuhas to cover t 
entire cost* This would really be an investment on. the part of the Statn since 
fund would be returned and operational costs met out of rentals paiu* Howeve 
this is impossible it seems probable that private funds could be secured to fii 



~"Jh 



the project. Commercial Banks and Insurance Companies are seeking opportunities 
for invent end might well be interested in such a proportion. 

The suggestion is also aaae that the' Hassachusetts State College Btrfla- 
* , i»-„r.^ion orSniaed by the Alumni under Legislative Act, might use a part 
S*t£ capi^hich £ S authorised to raise for the construction of such semi- 
pLmanenr^luSgs so as to have some facilities available by the fall of 1946, 
and buiU only one permanent structure. 



If it is decided to go ahead with p^ans for the construction of addi- 
tional dormitories to be available the fall of 1946 on this suggested Md-fum*- 
nent basis, the following steps should be taken ^ the Trustees* 

1 It should be ascertained probably through His Excellency, the 
Governor, whether or not State Funds can be made available to meet the cost of 
the proposed construction. It is doubtful if time will permit delay until 
fecial appropriation can be provided by the Legislature so that such ,^m wow 
have to come, from funds already appropriated for emergency use and at the dispot 
of His Excellency. 

2. If State Funds are not available, Trustees might consult with the 
Alumni Building Corporation to see if a mutually-satisfactory arrangement can 
made for that organization to finance such construction out of funds already 
authorised. 

3„ If neither of the above procedures appears feasible ana it 
cided to undertake the program with borrov.ed private funds, the Trustees would 
need to secure authority, perhaps through the Governor's Emergency to Powers, 
to borrow the necessary funds from private sources, secured by first mortgage o: 
the buildings — the loan to be aBorti*ed in 20 years, interest, capital repayment 
and operating cost to be provided by State appropriation as in the case of dormi- 
tories constructed xrj the Alumni Builaing Corporation and with the understanding 
that such appropriations are in turn offset by revenue returned to the State 
Treasury from rental of the building.

appreciation for the efforts of his committee. 

President Baker reported that a Mr. McCarthy of Northampton 
has presented a bill to the Legislature calling for change in name 
of Massachusetts State College to University of Massachusetts. As 
far as the President knows, Mr. McCarthy has made no contact with 
the college administration nor with the Board of Trustees. The 
President said that another bill has been introduced into the Legis- 
lature calling for the establishment of a State University near 
Boston. He said that his own inclination is to go slow on the 
University idea for the College, that he would rather see the 
College grow and broaden its program and let the name come of itself 

At the request of the Chairman, Director Munson pre- 
sented brief report on the Extension Service program of the past 
year, ^e described the tremendous program undertaken to increase

short written report to be sent to members of the Legislature as 
an aid in the college drive for funds. 

Trustee Whitmore, Chairman of the Committee on Buildings 

and Grounds, presented report and recommendations of the committee 

which met during the afternoon and, it was

search, public relations, higher education and academic freedom. 
The meeting next fall will be held in Rhode Island. Mr. Whitmore 
was elected Vice-President of the organization.

member of the Board and that his services will be missed. 

Treasurer Hawley reported on recent conference with 
Emergency Public Works officials at which he learned that they 
have advertised for bids on several projects. The bids received 
are so high that the Commission will need an additional appropria- 
tion of 20% for the construction of approved buildings, including 
the Home Economics Building and the Steam and Electrical Distri- 
bution Project for the College. This means that these jobs must

President Baker presented his annual report for the year 
ending December 31 > 194-5 and, it was 

VOTED ; To accept the President's report as presented. 

At this point His Excellency Maurice J. Tobin, Governor of 
the Commonwealth, was escorted to the meeting. He expressed regrets 



160 (a)-U-43. 13051 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



that he had been unable to attend the full session as it had been 
necessary for him to attend final meeting of United Nations dele- 
gates who are in Massachusetts to consider sites for the organiza- 
tion headquarters. The Governor expressed his keen interest in 
the College in seeing that the College receives the support it 
needs to carry on in the post-war period and give most effective 
service to the citizens of the Commonwealth. He suggested that the 
Trustees might assist further in supporting the college budget by 
appointing a special committee to wait upon the Speaker of the 
House, President of the Senate, Chairman of the Ways and Means 
Committee and Chairman of the Education Committee to present the 



X'&i . 



college needs. 



Chairman Bartlett agreed to appoint a special 



committee for this purpose. 

The Governor expressed his desire to hear the needs 
of the College and President Baker reviewed briefly the high lights 
of his annual report emphasizing the v;ar record of the College and 
the determination of the Administration and the Trustees to carry 
forward aggressively in the post-war period. He said that during 
the war years -the College has devoted major attention to the needs 
of Agriculture through further development of the Extension Service 
and the Experiment Station. Now in this post-war period, our most 
important problem of the College is service to veterans. An en- 
rollment of 2,000 students is expected in the fall of 194-6 of which 
1,000 or more will be veterans. This means 200 more students than 
the pre-war peak load of the College. If the College is to serve 
these veterans, it must have additional housing, additional teachers;

and an engineering and physics building. 

The Governor recalled conversations of last year with 
the President and some of the Trustees concerning the salary level 
of the faculty. He suggested that the Trustees keep in close touch 
with the committee on Yilays and Means toward establishing a better 
rate of compensation for members of the faculty. 

Governor Tobin expressed his readiness to cooperate with 
the Trustees in every way to see that the College goes forward in 
its service to the people of the State. 

The meeting was adjourned at 12:30 P.M.

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

VOTED ; To appoint Leonard Richard Wilson Professor 
and Chairman of t he Department of Geology 
and Mineralogy to succeed Dr. Clarence E. 
Gordon effective September 1, 194-6. 

President Baker recalled previous discussions among the 
Trustees ox the establishment of a School of Veterinary Medicine. 
Latest discussion of this matter occurred at meeting of the Execu- 
tive Committee in March of 194-6 at which time it was emphasized 
that such a school would be very expensive and that there is no 
available space for its operation. However, there has been steady 
pressure from the outside for its establishment, particularly in 
view of the feet that the nearest accredited school of veterinary 
medicine is at Cornell university. 

President Baker emphasized the desirability of t he 
establishment of a School of Veterinary Medicine here if one is to 
be located in the New England area. He said that it would be unwise 
however, to establish the school until it could be adequately 
financed and so organized that within two or three years it could 
be accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association. 

Chairman Bartlett referred to action of the Executive 

Committee in March favoring the establishment of a Veterinary 

School but emphasizing feeling of the Trustees that the Physics 

Building and the Engineering Building should come first. After 

full discussion, it was unanimously 

VOTED: That the Trustees of Massachusetts State College 
be recorded in favor of the establishment of a 
School of Veterinary Medicine at the College, 
said School to be established when sufficient 
funds are available for staff, equipment and 
operation so that the School may anticipate 
certification by the American Veterinary 
Medical Association.

President Baker said that the classes of 1915 and 1916 

which have returned this year for reunion have requested that the 

Trustees name the Food Technology Building for Professor Walter W. 

Chenoweth who was in charge of the Department of Food Technology 

from its beginning in 1918 until 1941* Trustee Taber spoke in 

favor of naming the building for Professor Chenoweth and requested 

permission for the classes of 1915 and 1916 to erect a plaque on the 

building with the new name. It was 

VOTED: To name the Food Technology Building the Chenoweth 
Laboratory and to authorize the classes of 1915 
and 1916 to erect a plaque on the building con- 
taining this new name. 

There was discussion of progress toward construction of 
the Home Economics Building, the Steam Line Extension to the dormi- 
tories, and the Federal Housing Project. After discussion and on 
the recommendation of the President and the Treasurer, it was 

VOTED: That the Trustees approve the award of contract for 
the construction of the Home Economics Building 
provided authentic bid is received within the 
amount of funds available which bid is satisfactory 
to the College and the Emergency Public Works 
Commission; and that they authorize the Treasurer 
to execute such contract in the name of and for 
the Board of Trustees. 

a. That the Trustees authorize the appointment of 
Edward C. Brown Company as engineers for plans, 
specifications, and supervision of construction 
of the Steam Line Extension to new dormitories 
and to Butterfield House at compensation of 
six percent of contract sum, reasonable 
traveling expenses to be paid in addition. 

b. That the Trustees approve the award of contract 
for the construction of Steam Line Extension to 
new dormitories and Butterfield House provided 
satisfactory bid is received within amount of 
funds available and that they authorize the 
Treasurer to execute such contract in the name 
of and for the Board of Trustees.

Treasurer Hawley reported that due to the unexpectedly 

large enrollment in the Summer Session, the Summer Session budget 

as originally approved by the Trustees would be insufficient. He 

reported that he had conferred with Chairman Bartlett and that the 

Chairman suggested that the Treasurer request additional funds in 

the amount of $6400 for the Summer Session in the supplementary 

budget pending approval by the Board. On the recommendation of 

Chairman Bartlett, it was

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

June 7, 1946 

Mr. Joseph W. Bartlett, Chairman 

Board of Trustees, Massachusetts State College 

49 Federal Street, Boston 10, Massachusetts 

Dear Chairman Bartlett* 

It is with keen regret that the time has 
come for me to ask the Board of Trustees to accept 
my resignation as President of the College to take 
effect on or before June 30, 1947. 

My physical condition is such that I know 
I must gradually lighten the load which I have been 
carrying for nearly fourteen years at the College 
if I am to continue with reasonably good health in 
the years ahead. 

During the coming summer I should like to 
take some two months of sick leave so as to be 
reasonably well prepared for the opening months of 
the coming college year. 

Sincerely, 

/s/ Hugh P. Baker 

The Trustees indicated deep regret that the president 
should feel that the time had come for him to lay down the leader- 
ship which he has given the College for so many years. They urged 
that the President not request acceptance of the resignation at 
this time as it might appear unseemly if the resignation were 
accepted at the same meeting at which it was presented. 

President Baker expressed his appreciation to the Board 

for their feelings but insisted that he would feel more relieved 

of the burden of the presidency if the action could be final at 

this session. At the request of the President, the Board 

VOTED : To accept his resignation to take effect on 
or before June 30, 1947.

It was then 

VOTED ; To request the Chairman to appoint a committee 
of five Trustees to prepare appropriate reso- 
lutions of appreciation for Dr. Baker's 
splendid service and regret for his decision 
to leave, this committee to be also charged 
with the responsibility of locating and pre- 
senting possible candidates to succeed Presi- 
dent Baker. 

His Excellency, Maurice J. Tobin, Governor of the Common- 
wealth, entered the meeting and Chairman Bartlett relinquished the 
chair to the Governor. His Excellency expressed regret at Presi- 
dent Baker's resignation and said that Dr. Baker had given outstand- 
ing leadership to Massachusetts State College during one of the 
most trying periods that educators have had to face through long 
years of depression, preparation for war, and war. He said that 
the outstanding reputation of the College today is due in large 
part to President Baker's leadership. 

Chairman Bartlett informed the Governor that the Trustees 
had just voted to favor the establishment of a Veterinary School 
at the College but that he wished to emphasize that the Trustees 
still feel that the Physics and Engineering buildings should come 



first. 



President Baker reported that he plans to be away on sick

Governor Tobin said that he wished to discuss with the 
Trustees his proposal for the operation of a veterans college at 
Fort Devens. A great many veterans have already been discharged in 
Massachusetts who are eligible for higher education under terms of 
the G.I. Bill. A survey of Massachusetts colleges indicates that 
by May 1, 194-6, 2800 eligible veterans were turned away because of 
overcrowded conditions. The Governor said that he had called to- 
gether the presidents of Massachusetts colleges some time ago to 
discuss veterans education. At this meeting an exploratory 
committee of college presidents was appointed to investigate further 
the necessity for setting up a temporary college for veterans. The 
Governor then called on Commissioner Desmond to review the findings 
of this exploratory committee. 

Commissioner Desmond said that the committee had canvassed 
Massachusetts colleges and obtained the names of 2800 Massachusetts 
veterans fully qualified for college entrance who had been turned 
away for lack of facilities. Currently the Armed Forces are dis- 
charging veterans into Massachusetts at the rate of 22,500 per 
month. Assuming that 8% of this group will be eligible for college 
education and that half of the 8% will want to enter Devens, 1800 
more men will apply between May and September - this would make a 
total of at least 4-000 men by September 1. The Commissioner said 
that the exploratory committee of college presidents was convinced 
that it would be impossible for this number to be handled in the 
colleges of Massachusetts, that the only way they could be given a 
college education would be by following the Governor's suggestion 
for the establishment of a college at Fort Devens.

Governor Tobin then read President Baker 1 s telegram of 

June 4> 1946 to the Board of Trustees of Massachusetts State College 

as follows: 

"Governor Tobin telephones asking immediate poll 
Trustees on awarding our degrees veterans at pro- 
posed Devens school. Desires refjly for meeting 
his exploratory committee tomorrow afternoon 
Commissioner Desmond's office. I recommend our 
degrees be offered providing other men's colleges 
join with our Trustees in sponsoring and management 
and that our standards of admission and scholarship 
be maintained and that the junior senior years be 
taken in residence this College. This would give 
Legislature two years in v/hich to provide addi- 
tional facilities here where they would be per- 
manently useful. Hoped could delay discussion de- 
cision until Board meeting Saturday; however we 
should respond Governor's request. Do you approve 
recommendation? Please wire collect." 

The Governor said that he was in full accord with provi- 
sions 1 and 2 of the telegram above but that he questioned the 
feasibility of the tremendous expansion of Massachusetts State 
College in the next two years to make room for /+QQQ veteran transfers 
from Fort Devens. He recommended that the Trustees consider the de- 
sirability of so planning the Fort Devens branch as to allow 
veterans to complete their college education there. The buildings 



and other facilities at Fort Devens are excellent. The Fort is a 
permanent military establishment and one of the best in the country. 

Chairman Bartlett raised question as to who would be 
responsible for the operation of the Devens college and the Governor 
suggested that he would like to see the Massachusetts State College 
Trustees together with the presidents of some of the mens' colleges 
of Massachusetts be responsible. The addition of some college presi- 
dents to the Board vrould help to maintain their interest in the pro- 
ram and insure their help in procuring faculty. Some of these 



TRUSTEE 



160 (a)-ll-43. 13051 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



presidents stand ready to loan very able men to staff the Devens 
college. 

President Baker said that his reason for suggesting that 
the veterans complete their last two years on this campus came from 
his belief that the men would find more satisfactory facilities in 
an old established college for their major work of the last two 



years 



Chairman Bartlett said that the Board of Trustees would be 



glad to cooperate in whatever plan worked out best, that their main 
interest was in giving these veterans an education that we can all 
be proud of. Governor Tobin assured the chairman that he, too, was 
interested in having only the best of educational facilities for 
the veterans. 

Dr. Carmichael, who is a member of the exploratory 
committee of college presidents, congratulated Governor Tobin on his 
statesman-like approach to this educational problem. He said the 
committee was highly pleased that the Governor has held out for a 
real and not an imitation college training at Fort Devens. He 
suggested that the Trustees appoint a committee to study further the 
feasibility and desirability of transferring at least some of the 
veterans to Massachusetts State College upon the completion of two 
years at Devens. He said the college presidents were convinced 
that the first two years' work could be given on a high plane at 
Devens but were doubtful as to being able to make arrangements for 
equally high grade work for the last two years.

Governor To bin urged that the Devens plan not be delayed 
by the requirement that the men complete their last two years here. 
It will be some time before we can tell what major courses the 
veterans will elect. 

Dr. Boyden complimented Governor Tobin' s plan. He said 
he believed that the Governor has been farsighted and has held to 
a high plane in his principles for the education of veterans. He 
pointed out that civilian high school graduates are also faced with 
the inability to get into colleges today. 

Commissioner Desmond said that of the 4A75 applications 
expected at Fort Devens, 2,06.2 would be in Liberal Arts, 328 in 
Business Administration, 952 in Engineering, 333 other. 

After discussion, it was unanimously 

VOTED j To approve Governor Tobin' s suggestion that the 
Massachusetts State College Trustees not require 
that veterans at Fort Devens transfer here for 
the last t?;o years in order to receive the degree 
of this College. 

It was 

VOTED ; To request the Chairman to appoint a committee 

of the Board to study further the possibility of 
expansion of Massachusetts State College to take 
at least some of the Devens veterans after two 
years as transfer students at Massachusetts 
State College. This committee would explore 
virhat would be needed here to make effective these 
transfers. 

After luncheon the group reconvened in President Baker' s 
office and Chairman Bartlett presented Dr. Van Meter and announced 
that he had accepted the honor of being Acting President of the 
College during the absence of President Baker. 

For the information of the Trustees, President Carmichael 
read the following letter from the exploratory committee of college 
presidents to Governor Tobin.

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

REPORT TO HIS EXCELLENCY MAURICE J. TOBIN, GOVERNOR OF THE COMMON- 
WEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS, OF AN EXPLORATORY COMMITTEE COMPOSED OF A 
GROUP OF MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGE PRESIDENTS CONCERNING THE NEED FOR 
ADDITIONAL. FACILITIES FOR THE ADVANCED EDUCATION OF VETERANS IN 
MASSACHUSETTS 



June 3, 1946 

His Excellency Maurice J. Tobin 

Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 

State House 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Your Excellency: 

The informal Exploratory Committee appointed by you con- 
sisting of a group of Massachusetts college presidents to consider 
the immediate need for additional facilities for the advanced educa- 
tion of veterans in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts makes the 
following report : 

The committee wishes to express its appreciation to you and 
to Commissioner Desmond for your insistence that any institution tha 
may be established to serve Massachusetts veterans shall raaintain a 
high level of academic standards so that the veterans who are en- 
rolled shall receive an education fully equal to that offered in the 
already established colleges and universities of the Commonwealth. 

Your committee has explored the situation and the need for 
additional facilities beyond those available at the present time in 
the Commonwealth* The committee recommends the establishment of a 
temporary college at Fort Devens to be known as the Devens Extension 
of the Massachusetts State College. This college shall provide 
three or four terms of instruction of at least fifteen weeks each in 
English, mathematics, biology, physics, chemistry, foreign languages 
history, political science, and economics. The admission require- 
ments and standards in courses in the Devens Extension shall be 
identical with those now prevailing at the Massachusetts State 
College. It is understood that the work shall be given on the basis 
of three terms a calendar year. It is further recommended that 
during the first two terms instruction be given in freshman sub- 
jects only. 

It is hoped that subject to the arrangements outlined below 
fully qualified students after completing this work at Devens may 
transfer with full credit to the Massachusetts State College at 
Amherst for the completion of their college program and thereby 
satisfy the requirements for a Bachelor's degree. 

The committee recommends that the management of the pro- 
posed college be under the Trustees of the Massachusetts State 
College augmented by a group of Massachusetts college presidents; 
this augmented board to have jurisdiction over the Devens Extension 
only.

TRUSTEE 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

In making these recommendations it is assumed that the 
Trustees of Massachusetts State College will endeavor to provide 
facilities for the regular Junior and Senior years at Amherst for 
those students who pass satisfactorily Freshman and Sophomore 
courses at Devens. 

It is recommended that appropriate action be taken at 
the earliest possible date by you and by the General Court to provide 
the needed additional facilities at Amherst necessary for those 
students who successfully complete the courses at the Devens Ex- 
tension. 

Respectfully yours, 

James B. Conant 
Chairman 

Chairman Bartlett raised question as to the administration 
of Fort Devens. If the Trustees of Massachusetts State College do 
the job, the Trustees must handle the funds. He suggested the 
possibility of employing an administrator to work under the Board. 

Commissioner Desmond said that the college presidents would 
welcome having the Trustees of Massachusetts State College handle 
the finances. Chairman Bartlett then canvassed members of the 
Board as to whether the Board of Trustees alone should have juris- 
diction over the Devens branch or whether the Board should be 
augmented by the addition of the presidents of some of the Massa- 
chusetts colleges. After discussion, it was 

VOTED : To approve the operation of a branch college for 
veterans at Fort Devens, to be known as the Fort 
Devens Branch of Massachusetts State College and 
to be sponsored and managed by the Board of 
Trustees of Massachusetts State College, enlarged 
by legislative action to include the presidents 
of nine private colleges of Massachusetts to be 
appointed by the Governor. 

* - * > 

Chairman Bartlett pointed out that the Legislature is 
about to prorogue and that if legislation is needed in connection 
with the Devens branch and budget that it would be necessary for 
such legislation to be submitted very shortly. On his recommendation 

it was 



TRUSTEE

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

VOTED : To request Commissioner Desmond and Treasurer 
Hawley to prepare a budget to be submitted to 
the Legislature and also to arrange for 
necessary legislation for the operation of 
the Fort Devens branch. 

On the recommendation of the Chairman, it v/as also 

VOTE D: To request Chairman Bartlett to appoint a special 
committee of five Trustees to prepare a plan and 
begin preliminary moves for operation of Devens 
branch and to report to the Full Board at special 
meeting to be held in Boston on the evening of 
Tuesday, June 13th. The Chairman appointed the 
following committee: 

Frank L. Boyden, Chairman 
John M. Deely 
John J. Desmond 
Philip F. Whitmore 
Mrs. Elizabeth L. McWamara 

It was agreed that if the Board is augmented with other 
college presidents by June 18 that these presidents would be in- 
vited also to attend the meeting. 

It was agreed that the appropriation to be requested for 
the operation of Devens by Commissioner Desmond and Treasurer 
Hawley should be made to the Trustees of Massachusetts State College 

Trustee Brett raised question as to location of the new 

Alumni dormitory and its general plan of construction. It was 

VOTE D: To refer this question to the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee and to authorize the Executive Committee 
to act for the Board on receipt of recommendation 
from the Buildings and Grounds Committee. 

The meeting was adjourned at 5 o'clock.

Minutes of Meeting of Special Committee of Board of Trustees, 
Massachusetts State College to Consider Fort Sevens Branch, 
Monday, June 10, 194-6, 2:30 P.M., president's Office, Amherst 

Chairman Boyden presiding 

PRESENT : Trustees Boyden, Deely, Whitmore, Desmond, 
Mrs. McNamara, President Baker, Dean 
Van Meter, Dean Machmer, Treasurer Hawley, 
Secretary Burke 

Dr. Boyden said that he is appalled at the size of the 
opportunity which has come to Massachusetts State College through 
the Governor's plan for the operation of a branch for veterans at 
Fort Devens. He commended the Governor's program highly as it is 
important that the veteran not be the forgotten man in education. 
He said this opportunity is not alone a personal opportunity for 
the veteran but is an opportunity for this nation to obtain a pool 
of trained men to meet national crises. America seems to be 
lagging, for example, in the production of trained chemists as the 
draft took practically all men out of colleges. 

For the information of the committee, Commissioner Desmond 
reviewed facilities available at Fort Devens. It has been arranged 
that the College would have for its use 2jf square miles of the 29 
square miles of the military establishment - included are 115 brick 
buildings, a quadrangle of dormitory buildings, excellent cafeterias 
an administrative building, two theatres of 530 capacity each, a 
post exchange which could be used as a college store, a sports 

arena, a. gymnasium with four basketball courts, quarters for 

i 

» 
faculty and married students. There are no physics or chemistry 

laboratories but certain of the buildings have exposed piping so 

that they could be converted into laboratories. A large amount of 

surplus equipment has been frozen until the State determines what

it will need to equip the Devens college. 

Chairman Boyden then read the following proposed legisla- 
tive action to set up authority for the operation of Devens. 

"Chapter 15, Section 20 of the General Laws is hereby 
revised by adding the following sections: 

"Sect._2QA - The Board of Trustees of Massachusetts State 
College as authorized by Chapter 1$, Section 20, General Laws, is 
hereby increased by the addition of nine Trustees to be appointed 
by the Governor from the Presidents of Men' s Colleges of the 
Commonwealth; said Trustees to serve for a term of five years or 
until such time as operation of the Devens Branch of Massachusetts 
State College shall be terminated as hereinafter provided. 

"Sec., _20B - The augmented Board of Trustees as provided 
for in Sect. 20A shall have responsibility only for the establish- 
ment, operation and termination of a Branch of Massachusetts State 
College at Fort Devens for the purpose of providing instruction of 
collegiate grade to Veterans of World War II. 

"Sect.*, 20Cj - Such duties and powers as are essential to 
the establishment, operation end termination of a Branch of the 
Massachusetts State College at Fort Devens are hereby granted to the 
augmented board including: 

a. leasing of property from the Federal Government. 

b. employment of faculty and staff and fixing their 

salaries and terms of employment. 

c. purchase of supplies and equipment. 

d. executing of contracts for acquisition of equipment 

or facilities for operation of special services, 

or for other purposes necessary in the judgment 

of the Board to the proper operation of the Branch. 

e. making of rules and regulations governing the con- 

duct of students. 

f. fixing of tuition and fees. 

" Sect. 2QD - The augmented Board of Trustees, as provided 
for in Sect. 20A, shall have authority to terminate the operation 
of the Devens Branch of Massachusetts State College when in its 
judgment the need for its further service for the instruction of 
Veterans of World War II no longer exists unless sooner terminated 
by action of the General Court. Upon termination the Board shall 
be responsible for the disposition of the property of the Common- 
wealth under its control and shall take such other steps as it may 
consider necessary to termination. Upon the termination of the

" Sect. 20 E - Nothing in the above Sections 20A, 20B, 20C 
and 20D shall be construed as affecting in any way the powers and 
duties of the Board of Trustees of Massachusetts State College as 
described in Chapter 75 of the General Laws." 

Commissioner Desmond was called on the telephone by 
Mr. Roy Smith, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and 
he reported to the committee that Mr. Smith is doubtful of the need 
for establishing a college at Fort Devens. Mr. Smith feels that 
perhaps the State College and the State Teachers Colleges could be 
expanded to take care of veteran needs. The Ways and Means 
Committee is planning to meet Tuesday, June 11, to consider the 
Fort Devens plan. The Trustee committee, therefore, drafted the 
following telegram which was sent to Massachusetts college presi- 
dents and other college representatives. 

"The Ways and Means Committee are holding a hearing 
tomorrow Tuesday morning at 10:30 at the State House 
to consider action on the recommendations of the 
exploratory committee on the college at Devens. 
From information just received we feel the situation 
is very critical and that recommendation from the 
committee is very doubtful unless the program can 
be strongly presented tomorrow morning and supported 
by the college presidents. We feel it is vitally 
important that as many colleges as possible be repre- 
sented and hope that you or some one from your insti- 
tution will be present t o join with the special 
committee of the Trustees of Massachusetts State 
College in the presentation. Immediate legislative 
action necessary because of prorogation." 

/s/ Frank L. Boyden 
Chairman Trustee's Committee 
Massachusetts State College 

It was agreed that the following three points might be 

brought out at the Ways and Means hearing: 

1. That a substantial number of veterans wish 
to bake advantage of the B.I. Bill of Rights 
to obtain college training - approximately 4>000.

2. That facilities are not available f or the 
education of these men in Massachusetts 
colleges. 

3. That the principal cost of the operation of 
a Fort Devens Branch would be borne by the 
Federal Government. 

It was agreed that the committee should proceed to locate 
a candidate for the presidency of the Fort Devens branch and that 
this candidate preferably should be a recognized educator and not 
a military men. It was further agreed that Dr. Boyden would 
approach Dr. Lewis Perry, until recently Headmaster of Andover 
Academy, to see if he might be willing to undertake the presidency. 

The meeting was adjourned at 5 o'clock.

MINUTES OF MEETING OF FULL BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

September 4, 194-6, 6:00 P.M., Parker House, Boston 

PRESENT: Trustees Bartlett, Cole, Hubbard, Brown, 
Desmond, Mrs. McNamara, Whitmore, 
Hoftyzer, Saltonstall, Brett, Deely, 
Thomas H. Buckley, Commission on Ad- 
ministration and Finance, President 
Baker, Dean Van Meter, Treasurer Hawley, 
Secretary Burke 

Chairman Bartlett welcomed Mr. Buckley and announced that 
Mr. Buckley wished to speak with the Board concerning means of 
facilitating acquisition of supplies and preparation of property at 
Devens. Mr. Buckley described the work which he and other members 
of the Commission on Administration and Finance have been doing to 
secure clearance for the use of buildings and remodelling of build- 
ings through the Federal Works Agency and for the acquisition of 
laboratory supplies and equipment, furniture, furnishings, and other 
items required at Devens. Members of the Commission have worked with 
the Federal Works Agency, the United States Army and others. They 
have made trips to New York City, Washington and elsewhere. Ex- 
cellent progress has been made in acquiring buildings and in 
arranging for their reconstruction. A big problem remains to be 
solved in the acquisition of educational supplies. 

Mr. Buckley explained that Devens is one of the first 
veterans colleges in the country to become activated and for this 
reason almost all problems at Devens are new problems in so far as 
Federal authorities are concerned, precedent is being established 
in almost every decision made, precedent that will make it easier 
for other veterans colleges throughout the country. Because of this 
trail biasing there has been much extra work for those charged with 
getting Devens ready.

Mr. Buckley expressed his thanks and appreciation to the 
many Federal authorities who have given splendid cooperation to the 
Commission. 

Chairman Bartlett expressed the appreciation of the Board 
of Trustees to Mr. Buckley and his associates in the Commission on 
Administration and Finance for their unusual and highly successful 
efforts in getting Devens ready. He said that the Board of Trustees 
could never have gone ahead as far as they have without the constant 
assistance of Mr. Buckley. 

In order that Commissioner Buckley might be in position to 

continue his efforts, it was 

VOTE D; That the Trustees authorize the Honorable Thomas 
H. Buckley, Chairman of the Commission on Ad- 
ministration and Finance, to act for the Board of 
Trustees of Massachusetts State College in all 
matters pertaining to the preparation and sub- 
mission of applications to the Federal Bureau of 
Community Facilities for making of agreements and 
acceptance of educational facilities for Massa- 
chusetts State College at Fort Devens. 

There was discussion of the tuition rate to be established 

at Devens and, it was 

VOTED ; That the Trustees refer to the Finance Committee 
of the Board with power the matter of fixing 
tuition rates and fees for Massachusetts State 
College at Devens. 

Upon the recommendation of the Trustee Committee on 

Finance, it was 

VOTED ; To appoint architects for new college buildings 
as follows; 

1. Physics Building - Killam, Hopkins and Greeley, 

Newbury Street, Boston. 

2. Animal Disease Building - Louis W. Boss, Boston.

It was understood that appointment of these architects

On the recommendation of the Executive Committee, it was 

VOTED ; To establish a tuition rate at Massachusetts 
State College, Amherst, for all non-resident 
students and for all veterans enrolled under 
the provisions of Public Law 34& of $110 per 
semester - said rate to be retroactive to 
September 1, 1944 • 

Also on the recommendation of the Executive Committee, it 



was 



VOTED: 



To approve the following tuition and fees for 
the 6-weeks 1 summer session in 194& at Massa- 
chusetts State College, Amherst. 

Residents of Massachusetts $20.00 

Non-residents and veterans 40.00 
Non-residents and veterans - one 

course only 20.00 
Special Public Health Course - 

residents 15.00 

One credit course - residents 5*00 

On the recommendation of the Committee on Buildings and 

Grounds, it was 

VOTED; To locate the Physics Building opposite 

Goessmann Laboratory near North Pleasant Street 
so that it would be the first building in the 
interior of the campus from North Pleasant Street. 
It was felt that this would leave room for one 
more building in this line in the interior of the 
campus. However, it was agreed that the Physics 
Building should not be placed so near to North 
Pleasant Street that traffic vibrations would in- 
terfere with experimental work. 

Also on the recommendation of the Trustee Committee on 

Buildings and Grounds, it was 

VOTED: To locate the Animal Disease Building northwest 
of Stockbridge Hall.

Chairman Bartlett then opened discussion on the college 
budget for 194-3. He explained that the Finance Committee had given 
consideration to the budget during the afternoon and had made con- 
siderable reduction in the non-Instruction items. He said the 
committee had agreed that it was necessary to increase the In- 
struction item to take care of the educational needs of veterans 
and other students. The committee recognized the needs of the Ex- 
tension Service, Experiment Station and other branches of the 
College but felt that these services must recognize the vital im- 
portance at this time of the resident educational services. 

Treasurer Hawley then discussed the budget item by item, 
explaining that in round figures the maintenance budget amounts to 
two and one-quarter million dollars which is an increase of $318,000 
or 16$ over the current year. This increase is caused by additions 
to the staff to handle an enrollment of 2300 to 2400 students plus 
600 students who will come from Devens to Amherst at the end of 
January 194.3. Another important factor in the increase is the 
rising cost of supplies, equipment, and salaries. 

After discussion end upon recommendation of the finance 

Committee, it was 

VOTED : To approve a college budget for Maintenance in 
1943 of $2,315,460. 

It was also 

VOTED : To approve a budget for Boarding Hall of $315,000. 

It wa® also 

VOTED : To aoDrove a budget for Special Maintenance of

Chairman Bartlett reviewed the discussion in the Finance 
Committee concerning the housing of 300 veterans who were to have 
gone into the Alumni dormitories now under construction. He ex- 
plained that the dormitories, through no one's fault, would not be 
ready until December and that the committee had decided that these 
men should be housed in other quarters on the campus at Amherst 
rather than be sent to Devens. After discussion and upon the 
recommendation of the Finance Committee, it was 

VOTED ; T request that the Administration house these 
300 veterans at Amherst.

year, the amounts requested by the Trustees for the fiscal year 
beginning July 1, 194-7, the amounts recommended in the Governor's 
budget, and the amounts recommended in the Ways and Means Committee 
budget. In general the Ways and Means Committee increased per- 
sonal service items above the amounts recommended in the Governor's 
budget but reduced other maintenance items. The total amount 
recommended by the Ways and Means Committee for maintenance is 
$209,347 less than requested by the Trustees, and $34,046 less than 
recommended by the Governor. 

The Treasurer pointed out that the College expects a 50% 
increase in student body by February of 194& and a considerable 
increase in the number of buildings to be maintained. For these

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

reasons he recommended that the Trustees request a restoration of 
$109 j 900 in the budget for maintenance, such restoration to be re- 
quested in a Supplementary Budget. 

In addition to the budget for maintenance, he pointed out 
that items of capital improvement, including a building for Engi- 
neering, are not included in the present budget recommended by the 
Ways and Means Committee, Capital improvements are to be con- 
sidered later. He reported that the Trustees request of $1,225*000 
for an Engineering Building probably could not be approved by the 
Legislature because of the general acceptance of the Governor's 



recomme 



nidation of no capital improvements this year. Therefore by 
authority of the Trustees, the College has reduced its asking to a 
single-story Engineering Laboratory to cost $250,000 so that the 
College may carry on its Engineering program and accept transfer 
students in Engineering from Devens beginning February of 194-3. 
This laboratory would eventually become a Yi?ing of a larger Engineer- 
ing building. The College is also in great need of additional 
housing facilities and has requested an item of $400,000 for the 
construction of eight cinder block dormitories to house 280 single 
students and 50 married students or faculty members. The Treasurer 
said that one of the great needs for capital improvement is a new 
Power plant. However, it is impossible to obtain a new plant this 
year and the College has requested $ 50, 000 for an additional boiler 
in the present plant. He spoke, too, of the need for remodelling 
the old cavalry stable at a cost of $30,000 for use by the Military 
Science Division as headquarters for armored cars and other vehicles 
required for the present R0TC program. Another real need of the

College, the Treasurer said, is salary increases for members of 

the professional staff. All the above items were requested by the 

Trustees in the present budget but so far have not been approved. 

Chairman Bart let t asked the Treasurer what the prospects 

were for the above named items being approved by the Legislature. 

The Treasurer said that the chances were good. After discussion, 

it was 

VOTED : To refer question of a Supplementary Budget 
to the Trustee Committee on Finance with 
power . 

At the request of President Van Meter, Secretary Burke 

presented recommendations for the appointment of three men to the 

grade of Professor and after discussion, it was 

VOTED: To approve the following appointments: 

1. Thomas W. Eck, Professor of Physical 
Education, March 1, 1947 at annual 
salary of $4,560. 

2. Byron E. Colby, Extension Specialist 
in Animal Husbandry, April 1, 1947 at 
annual salary of $J+,2QQ. 

3. Earl E. Lorden, Professor of Physical 
Education, August 1, 1947 at annual 
salary of $4,030. 

Mr. Saltonstall reported on joint meeting of the Trustee 
Committees on Agriculture and Extension Service. This meeting was 
held in his office on March 19. He said that the committee had 
invited representatives of the dairy industry, cranberry industry, 
and poultry industry as well as Director Sievers of the Experiment 
Station, Director Munson of the Extension Service, and Dean Rice 
of the School of Agriculture to discuss requests of these in- 
dustries for new positions and other services after these items

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

had been referred to his committee by action of the Board of 
Trustees in February, He said that the committee favored the 
recommendations of the cranberry and dairy industries but felt that 
the request of the poultry industry for an item of 150,000 for the 
establishment of a diagnostic station at Waltham in the new build- 
ing to be constructed there was questionable. The committee felt 
that since the College already has an outstanding diagnostic 
service at Amherst and since the Waltham Station is primarily for 
service in the field of Horticulture, the request should be tabled 
or actio~h postponed. After discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To approve recommendation of the Committee 

on Agriculture and the Committee on Extension 

Service that the following items be included 
in the Supplementary Budget. 

1. Extension Specialist in Cranberry Culture, 
Junior Clerk and travel at cost of $6,280. 

2. Extension Specialist in Dairy n erd Improve- 
ment, Extension Specialist in Dairy Herd 
Health, two Junior Clerks, and travel in 
the amount of #12,560. 

Also on the recommendation of the Trustee Committees on 

Agriculture and the Extension Service, it was 

VOTED: To postpone action on the request of the 
poultry industry for the establishment of 
a diagnostic station at Waltham. 

Treasurer Hawley reported that the Trustees had 

authorized President Baker to sign contract with the Federal Works 

Agency for the bringing in of three or four wooden classroom and 

laboratory buildings. However, the College must act immediately in 

the signing of this contract. In the absence of President Baker, 

he requested authorization to sign the contract for the Trustees.

The financial obligation of the College amounts to about $17,000 

for grading and bringing in utilities. This amount will be made 

available by the Legislature. After discussion, it was 

VOTED; To appoint Treasurer Hawley as authorized 
representative in accordance with the 
attached resolution. 

Treasurer Hawley recalled that at the February meeting, 
the Trustees had requested him to talk with State authorities rela- 
tive to increasing the blanket bond on employees of the College who 
handle cash. He has talked with the Comptroller concerning this 
and the Comptroller feels that State funds are adequately protected 
by the present bond of f 10, 000. The Comptroller suggested that if 
the bond were to be increased, it might be necessary to charge pro- 
portionate shares of the increased cost to each of the various 
Trust funds. The total amount of College Trust Funds is small but 
the number of funds is large and such charging would be a cumbersome 
operation. After discussion, it was 

VOTED ; To rescind the vote of February 6, 1947 to 
increase the commercial blanket bond cover- 
ing employees of Massachusetts State College 
at Amherst and at Devens from $10,000 to 
|20,000. 

President Van Meter suggested that the Trustees reaffirm 

their position concerning Massachusetts State College at Fort Devens 

so that the policy of the Board would be as clear as possible to 

the students at Fort Devens, to newspapers, or other interested 

persons or organizations. Apparently there has been confusion at 

Fort Devens as a result of misunderstanding the attitude of the 

Trustees. He said that part of the confusion has resulted from poor 

liaison between Amherst and Devens and that this situation is being

remedied, as the President and Vice President are planning to meet 

more frequently and deans of the two colleges are planning frequent 

meetings and will bring department heads together as necessary. He 

said that he and Dr. Hodnett were planning to work together in the 

matter of transfers. After discussion, the Board of Trustees of 

Massachusetts State College and the Executive Committee of the Board 

of Trustees of Massachusetts State College at Fort Devens 

VOTED : To reaffirm policy of the Board to keep the 

College at Fort Devens open as long as needed 
to insure a four-year college course for every 
qualified veteran. 

To reaffirm the policy of the Board to provide 
at the College at Fort Devens the freshman and 
sophomore years to all qualified veterans. 
Junior and senior years at Fort Devens will be 
approved only when it has been demonstrated 
that Massachusetts State College and/or other 
colleges cannot absorb all Devens students at 
the end of their sophomore year. 

To authorize the President and Secretary to 
confer with the Chairman of the Committee on 
Education of the General Court to inform him 
that if in the wisdom of the Legislature it is 
desirable to extend the period during which 
qualified veterans may be allowed to enter at 
Fort Devens, the Trustees are agreeable that 
the date for enrollment be extended to 
October 1, 1949. 

Dr. Van Meter read excerpt from letter from the Dean of 
Admissions at Boston University in which the Dean stated that stu- 
dents in good standing at Fort Devens at the end of their sophomore 
year may be accepted as transfers to Boston University with full 
credit for their first two years' work. 

Vice President Hodnett submitted a report on the Devens 
budget for the year beginning July 1, 194-7 as prepared by the Chief

considerable correspondence in an effort to locate outstanding can- 
didates for the position. 

Some 4-5 or 50 names have been submitted to the committee 
by Alumni, members of the college staff, educators at other colleges 
and in educational associations, farm groups, and others. The 
committee is looking both near and far but has felt the necessity 
for keeping the names of possible candidates from becoming public so 
as not to increase the difficulties of the selection. He said the 
committee welcomes suggestions from all members of the Board and 
from any others who may have candidates to suggest. 

The Chairman said that he had had word from President 
Baker that he would be back in Amherst very soon and said he felt 
he was speaking for the Board in expressing the hope that the Presi- 
dent has had a much deserved rest and relief from the burdens of 
office. He complimented Dr. Van ^eter on the fine work he has been 
doing as Acting President during an extremely trying period.

were placed in use at the beginning of the Second Semester,, These halls - 
Barnstable (Biology), Berkshire (Recitation) , Bristol (Recitation), Franklin 
(physics) and Plymouth (Chemistry) - give the college a' total of 3A excellent 
classroom's j, 14. chemistry laboratories, 8 physics laboratories, 6 biology 
laboratories, 2 noa-tecbnieal laboratories, and 7 lecture balls* The splendid 
facilities thus made available to us have already been immeasurably helpful to 
the classroom activities of faculty and students, and have also contributed 
much to the morale and prl«$e of the whole institution. 

Wentworth Williams 
Dean of the Faculty 

REPORT OF THE DEAN OF STUDENTS} 

At the opening of college in October 1310 students registered* At the 
end of the first semester, 122 had withdrawn because of personal reasons, un- 
satisfactory scholastic records, or transfer to other colleges, leaving a total 
of UBS* Of that number, 96 met the scholastic requirements for the Dean 9 s 

List (an average of 87, with no grade below 75) * The general level of academic 
performance was ccmmendably high* 381 new students were accepted either by 
examination or by certification for the semester beginning February 1, 1947* 
30 additional students having transferred at the end of the first semester, 
the college opened the second semester with a total registration of 1539* 

The median marks of the college for the fall semester is 78*7 -per cent. 
This mark is from three to four per cent higher than the usual college freshman 
average* The highest average for the period was an exceptional 95.1, while ten 
per cent of all the students averaged 86.9 or above, and 25 per cent of the 
student body averaged 83.3 or above* 

The Director of Activities, Mr. Robert G. Goodnow, resigned as of 
1 January* Since the job is somewhat unusual in its requirements, a suitable 
replacement has not yet been found, but it is expected that a nomination will 
be presented to the Board of Trustees shortly* The Supervisor of Records, 
Mr* Joshua 3, Seaver, has been transferred to the instruction staff in the 
Department of Mathematics, and has been succeeded by Mr. Richardson L. Greene, 
formerly a colonel in the U. S* Anay. 

The general life of the campus is characterized by vigor and variety. 
Athletically there is an active intramural program as well as intercollegiate 
basketball and hockey* Spring sports are beginning. For baseball 150 men 
have reported for varsity try-outs, and 250 for football. The club program is 
in full swing, and social life is very active, the top feature being a 
successful Winter Carnival the week end of February 14, and 15.

an old-fashioned melodrama* and a variety show* The next production is a 
serious drama, m Wings Over Europe » n The Glee Club and two orchestras are 
flourishing, and a production of Gilbert and Sullivan 9 s "Pirates of Pensance® 
is 'now in preparation * The STATESMAN, the college -newspaper, is appearing 
weekly and is maintaining a high standard of excellence* The projected 
literary magazine,, the COfifclOtOTEALTH, is reaching maturity* The Student 
Government has been organised under the Constitution, recently adopted by a 
majority vote of the students. This Constitution was the result of devoted 
work by a temporary- senate acting as a Constitutional Convention* Permanent 
class officers have been elected after a highly spirited campaign* 

A number of miscellaneous items contribute to the increasingly satis- 
factory operation of the College* By arrangement with Harvard University, 
living quarters in the Harvardevens Housing development have been made avail- 
able to our married students and faculty* Regular bus service between 
Harvardevens and the campus has been supplied thrcsugh the cooperation of the 
Leoainster-Fitchburg' Bus Company* 

The various organisations on the campus are cooperating in a series 
of programs called the w D©vens Tuesdays** These have to date included a 
lecture on atomic energy by the Assistant Director of the Harvard Observatory, 
two lieder concerts, a piano concert by a distinguished pianist, and a lecture 
by Dr. Bruniog, former chancellor of the German Republic* The French Consul 
spoke to the French Club* That organisation was also host to the French Clubs

A gi'oup of school superintendents held a. meeting on the campus and as 
a result .recommended to the Commission on Education that the yearly meeting 
of the school superintendents of Massachusetts, usually held at the State 
Teachers College at Bridgewater, be held on our campus. A request from 
Commissioner Desmond that we agree to this proposal has been cordially granted. 

We have just received word that the fine Red Cross building is at last 
to be transferred to us by way of FWA. It will serve especially for community 
affairs such as meetings of the married students' wives. In addition, the ARC 
is trying to find surplus lounge furniture for our dormitory lounge rooms.

July 21, 1947 



Tos Board of Trustees 



The Board of Trustees at their semi-annual meeting in June 
approved preliminary plans for the Physics Building and the Animal 
Disease Laboratory. These were submitted to the Massachusetts Public^ 
Building Commission in accordance with the law for their approval. 
I have just been notified by telephone that the Commission at its 
meeting on July 15 specified that the buildings must be constructed 
with flat roofs instead of pitch roofs as planned and approved by 
the Board of Trustees. 

In explaining the action of the Commission, the Secretary 
told me that the Commission believes that the flat-roof structure is 
more economical to build and to maintain than the pitch roof. Our 
Architect, Mr. Greeley for the Physics Building, had submitted 
figures to the Commission, at their request, on the difference in 
cost and this difference showed approximately $11,000 additional 
cost for the pitch roof as compared to the flat roof for this build- 
ing. The Commission believes that this difference is a minimum and 
that it probably would be more. 

The Commission also feels that the trend in modern 
architecture is toward the flat-roof style for buildings of this typ£. 

I appeared before the Commission with the Architect at 
its first consideration of this matter on July 3 and explained the 
action of the Board of Trustees. Both Mr. Greeley and I did our 
best to support the action of the Trustees in recommending the 
pitch roof. 

Under the provisions of Chapter 4-66 of the Acts of 194-7 
of the General Court, the Massachusetts Public Building Commission 
has authority to determine the type and plans for construction of 
State buildings. 

I have consulted with the Chairman of the Board of Trustee 
Mr. Bartlett, and he has authorized me to send this letter to each 
member of the Board with the request that they indicate on the en- 
closed ballot form their decision as to the acceptance of this rul- 
ing by the Public Building Commission. It seems to us that there is

no alternative than to accept this ruling if we are to proceed with 
the construction of these buildings with any hope of completing then 
by next year when they will be so urgently needed.

Dr. Van Meter stated that the budget of the college for 
the fiscal year beginning July 1, 194-3 was the largest ever sub- 
mitted to the Board of Trustees for the reason that the college is 
practically doubling in size over a two-year period and must be 
prepared to take the students from Devens at the completion of their 
fourth semester. The Board then considered the budget item by

$5,134,100 were listed under A of which 12 were included in budget

MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 

VOTED: To approve the Capital Outlay Program for 
1949 totaling $3,934,100. 

In approving the above amount for Extension Service 



budget, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Treasurer to insert tentatively 
an item of $15,000 in the budget to provide for 
reclassification of Extension Service positions. 

It vas further 

VOTED; To authorize the Chairman to appoint a special 
committee with power to act for the Board, this 
committee to confer with Director Munson con- 
cerning the positions recommended by the 
Director to be reclassified in the budget. The 
Chairman appointed John Deely as Chairman and 
Trustees Hubbard, Cole, and Mrs. McNamara. 

Appointment of this committee grew from desire of the 
Trustees for more information concerning recommendation in the 
budget that women members of the Extension Service be reclassified 
as full professors. It is understood that the Board withholds 
approval of Extension Service reclassifications as recommended in 
the budget until these may be confirmed by this special committee. 

The Treasurer and President explained that it would be 
necessary to build more dormitories of the cement block type to be 
ready by September of 1943. There would not be time for con- 
struction of these buildings if approval of the Legislature were 
granted in the closing days of the session by means of the budget. 
It was therefore 

VOTE D; To authorize the Administration to submit 
a special bill to the Legislature request- 
ing an appropriation of $500,000 for housing 
in conformity with item three of the Capital 
Outlay Program under the "necessary" heading.

Trustee Brett said that the Alumni Building Corporation 
has been in conference with the College Administration on the 
problem of faculty housing. It is virtually impossible for new 
faculty members to find housing in Amherst or surrounding communities . 
Unless housing can be provided, the college cannot continue to ex- 
pand and to take care of student transfers from Devens. There is 
no outlook that housing will be any better in the next year or two 
and if it is to be provided it is necessary for some one to take 
action. He proposed that the Alumni Building Corporation seek 
authorization from the legislature to provide faculty housing on 
the same basis that the Corporation has provided student housing. 
After discussion, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Alumni Building Corporation 

to act with the Administration to provide faculty 
housing in an amount not to exceed $500,000 with 
the understanding that the Administration will 
study further the amount of housing needed and that 
the Corporation will seek legislation following

Overpayment 



MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE 



It was 

VOTED: To accept with appreciation the gift of 
Mr. Neville Sturgis of Weston to the 
Trustees of the University in the form of 
income to be derived from a trust which he 
has set up under the trusteeship of DeBlois 
and Maddison of Boston. The anticipated 
annual income of this gift is $1700 and 
Mr. Sturgis specified that it be used by 
the Trustees in aiding deserving undergraduate 
students in the University. 

It was further 

VOTED: To request President Van Meter to write a 
letter of appreciation and acceptance to 
Mr. Sturgis. 

Chairman Bartlett explained that through oversight the 
College had paid a man for services rendered beyond the age of 70. 
State law requires that employees of the Commonwealth retire at 
age 70 but during the war legislative provision was made whereby 
such employees might continue in service. Later this provision 
was rescinded but the University through error failed to remove 
the man's name from the payroll at the proper time. He was paid 
$177.50 for services rendered beyond the time when he could be 
legally employed. The Comptroller's office is demanding that this 
money be reimbursed to the Commonwealth. The College has no funds 
with which to reimburse and the only recourse seems to be through- 
legislation to permit the payment of this amount. After discussion, 



it was 



VOTED: To authorize the Administration to file a bill 

to legalize this over payment unless the Treasurer 
can find some other means by which the State 
will be satisfied. 

The meeting was adjourned at 4:15 P.M.
